GOLFTEC opens world-class golf instruction and club fitting center in Alexandria, VA

(ALEXANDRIA, Va.) – GOLFTEC – the world leader in golf lessons and premium club fittings – announces the opening of a state-of-the-art instruction and club fitting center in Alexandria, Virginia at 1506A Belle View Boulevard.

The new facility is 2,250 square feet and has teaching / practice bays along with a putting green staffed by a team of highly-trained coaches. These individuals leverage GOLFTEC’s world-renowned teaching technology – including advanced motion measurement, video analysis and premium launch monitors – to help any student find the lesson plan best suited for their unique needs. GOLFTEC students drop an average of seven strokes from their scores.

GOLFTEC Alexandria also features the company’s enhanced custom club fitting program. The TOUR-like fitting experience combines swing characteristics with ball flight data to help identify optimal golf equipment for each student. An array of clubhead/shaft options are available to perfectly match players of any skill level with the clubs that best meet their needs. Nearly 75% of all golfers who went through a club fitting in 2018 gained an average of 25 yards over their previous equipment.

“The D.C. metro area is home to one of the largest and most passionate communities of golfers in the country,” says Joe Assell, co-founder and chief executive officer of GOLFTEC. “With this new center in Alexandria we look forward to helping both new and experienced golfers across the area play their best and enjoy the game more.”

GOLFTEC Alexandria Center Manager Phil Bowers, a company veteran of seven years, will oversee operations at the new facility. Bowers has taught more than 11,000 lessons at GOLFTEC and is a skilled player in his own right having qualified for the PGA of America’s National Championship three times.

“Our staff is made up of some of the finest and most experienced instructors in the area,” says Bowers. “GOLFTEC’s proven approach to instruction and club fitting allows us to fit the most improvement possible into our students busy schedules.”

GOLFTEC continues to establish itself as the world leader in golf improvement with more data on the golf swing than anyone else in the world, thanks to its award-winning SwingTRU Motion Study. The global GOLFTEC coaching team is comprised of experienced instructors that have graduated from GOLFTEC University – a multi-week certification program based around a curriculum of mastering advanced training of golf swing mechanics and GOLFTEC’s proprietary technology used in all Training Centers.
